Crete / Blue Palace, A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa

Cretan inspired Greek architecture, terracotta colours, mature palms and the endless blue reflected from over one hundred and forty private pools.

These are the ingredients that set the tone for a relaxing escape at this elegant hotel, staying in a choice of generously appointed accommodation – all bungalows, suites and villas replete with marble-lined bathrooms and beguiling sea views. Soothe your senses in the magnificent Elounda Spa, famed for its rituals employing seawater straight from the clear Cretan Sea. Two Thalasso pools are enhanced by hammams, saunas, Jacuzzis and a gym.

Five different restaurants range from the international cuisine of Olea, Oriental fusion at Asia Deep Blue, Italian fare at Isola and the Blue Door fresh fish tavern to the contemporary Greek cuisine of Anthós. A panoramic lift whisks guests to the private beach with sunbeds, umbrellas and beach service, where numerous watersports can be enjoyed. The hotel has three main swimming pools, together with a children’s pool, playground and kids’ club.

Please note: Blue Palace will be operating at reduced capacity as a boutique hotel from 1st May 2024. Before reopening fully in 2025 under the Rosewood brand.

Relax at Isola Beach Club

Designed by the internationally-acclaimed K-studio, the sophisticated Isola Beach Club is the ideal place to sit back and unwind. Set amongst the olive trees, guests can enjoy fresh juices, specially-crafted cocktails and casual Cretan cuisine under the canopies, whilst listening to smooth beach sounds from live DJs.


Traditional family cruises

Spend time together on a caique, a traditional wooden fishing boat cruising the crystal clear waters. Or indulge in Oriental fusion, Italian fare or Greek delicacies at one of their à la carte restaurants.

Arrive in style

Arrive like an A-lister in a private helicopter - the hotel's own helipad awaits to welcome guests in style and whisk them away to the mainland or nearby islands for day trips.

Cooking classes and Cretan Wine Tasting

Gourmands and oenophiles will love this hotel - learn how to replicate authentic flavours and make traditional Dolmadakia - stuffed vine leaves - before sampling Crete's best wine labels alongside local cheeses and crudités, with the in-house sommelier.

When to visit Greece

Greece is blessed with a Mediterranean climate. From mid May to mid June and mid September to October the climate is pleasant and sunshine is plentiful. July and August are hot with temperatures reaching 37°C. Winters tend to be mild in the south but much cooler in the north with an increased chance of rain.
